    thats not bad at all from a 720p camera , thing is its clear enough to see what going on, in standard vga it would be very hazy and not very much clarity.

    I own a Hitachi HDSV01U its a 1080p camera and cost me £70 a couple years back when released, a right royal pain as its not go-pro type fittings so i am stuck to a silly chest mount only ( not good when your view is of the dashboard speedo only ( im short so all you see are handlebars) and the non ability to helmet mount just makes it useless ( mind you 1080p @60fps is sweet )

    heres a clip of my jello wobble test flight ( i own drones ). one thing with cameras is high freqency shakes like you find on a motorbike/scooter and drone, it cause the image to jump around and a jelly like apperance to the cameras recording. a lotta cameras suffer this if fitted direct to handlebars / bodywork and its not easy to stabilize without using jello pads and a lotta tinkering.

    video in 720p @ 60fps



    amazon have some pucker 4k video action cams these days at around the £40-50 mark running the go-pro like mount system ( go-pro couldnt patent two prongs and a screw so everyones not making cameras that can use gopro mount parts.

    for what I use it for (usually as a just in case thing) it's perfect I didn't want to spend £100+ on one of the latest and greatest cameras only to find that I didn't like riding with a camera on Im still learning about cameras quality and editing etc etc but im slowly learning :p
    Next thing will be to try Moto-Vlogging occasionally if it turns out to be something I enjoy Ill probably invest in a higher quality camera but this one will do for now the fact that i could grab a frame and zoom in on a plate and still be able to read it really impressed me considering some £40 720p 30fps cameras couldnt give good enough quality to do that Id like to try a chest mount but wont bother buying the set up for that until/if I do end up buying a better cam

    Just got another one for a dashcam for the van

    someone mentioned maybe doing to motovlogging.

    theres a slight problem and that is most cameras these days only have an internal mic, but if your going to want to vlog a mic is very handy.
    so what you can do ( at your own risk ) is unsolder the mini internal mic and in its place add a 2.5 mic jack allowing you to fit corded boom mics and slipping them into your helmet,

    heres a video on the kitvison mic mod





    and heres a video on the waterproof box mod

    I would just use a external device to record sound and sync it in editing tbh I tried to get my phone to record with a external mic plugged in but it wouldnt

    Edit: ordered a trrs adapter for the phone so I'll be able to use external mic and record sound externally
